Also, Adwaita has succeeded Clearlooks what the Sky theme integrates with in Gnome 3. So that’s what I’d like to focus on. I’ll keep that in mind for sure. Outside the scope is making fonts that look good. This is for both dumbed down explanations and advanced or only partly related topics.

A bit like the “tutorial” now, but covering things more clearly. So that should also be considered.

One of the major failing of the current documentation is that it doesn’t fontforrge any of this, and just throws out basic “here are the tools” descriptions. The focus is getting started on making fonts, so some extra detail will be pulled out and stuck in other articles and so on. I think we need to decide exactly what the scope and purpose of these separate documents are.


We’d probably have a hard time finding two people that agree on exactly where to draw those lines, of course. IMO, the screenshots should use the default theme.

I’m not sure exactly what the scope or contents of the fontforgs be like, but the purpose, to document things the developers need to know, is clear I’m somewhat interested in hiding some parts of the documentation until the user unhides it. Anyway, I’m going to get started slowly rewriting it all to fit in that scheme.

fontforge(1) – Linux man page

I’m also curious where the magic number of pages comes from. A user new to Fontforge. I’ve been using the egtk theme from elementary and that would be my preference.

That said, glad to see that we’re starting the discussion in earnest, cause it’s overdue. But, I shall say I’m not sure it’s gonna happen. I would say it roughly breaks down by user role which I know is frighteningly similar to one of those weird “UI designer” buzzword approaches: In reply to this post by Dave Crossland.

I would put a lot of the advanced terminology topics in the same category Looks more generic and has better “contrast distribution” to me, of course – this means I see clearly what I need to see distinct, and I’m not hit by excessive contrast where it’s unneeded.


Same with Panose, weight-classes, etc. That’s a lengthy process: By the way, should I just post the outlines and plans to this repo or should I put up the new site that’s in the works too? Part of this is developer documentation.

Design With FontForge

Looking at the original website innot much has changed but it’s gotten very much inflated and needs to be restructured.

I think they all need to be using one resource file and fomtforge decoration, so that it retains unity through the whole thing and avoids confusion. In reply to this post by Nathan Willis-4 On 13 August They won’t be updated at the same speed nor likely by the same people and keeping them in one document makes it tempting to omit topics thinking that the reader can fntforge look it up in another section.

Especially when you throw in things like Spiro. This is missing sections on: Possibly scripts, possibly patches.
